Netsafe's Research Team release report on Parenting and Pornography

Netsafe's Research Team release report on Parenting and Pornography
  • Public
By Anjela Webster

The Netsafe Research team have been busy. This year a number of reports have been released that looked into our young people and their digital experiences, and, parents' perceptions around pornography and concerns for their children.

What does this mean to those at the coalface of classrooms? 

Parents need to be talking to their children and young people about the 'hard topics', and supporting their children to understand more about the online environment. Family and whānau are critical in the role of helping to develop skills and values needed for children to become critical, confident and capable citizens online and offline.

Schools play a role in encouraging parents in their support role across many aspects. Urging them to become more involved in knowing what their children are doing online is something teachers can message out in a number of ways: in newsletters, website, blogs, assemblies, class meet-ups, meet the teacher events etc. 

Check out Netsafe's website to cherrypick 'top tips' for parents and whānau around parenting in a digital age, and embed these into your newsletter or website as a regular feature.
